University of California, Los Angeles and VA GLAHS, Sepulveda, North Hills, California 91343, USA
Nature 435:1177. 2005..Our findings indicate either that sleep behaviour may not have the developmental and life-sustaining functions attributed to it, or that alternative mechanisms may have evolved in cetaceans...

Physiol Behav 92:725-33. 2007..We hypothesize that episodes of EEG slow wave activity at this time are likely to be brief, fragmenting EEG defined sleep into short episodes...
- An endogenous glutamatergic drive onto somatic motoneurons contributes to the stereotypical pattern of muscle tone across the sleep-wake cycleChristian Burgess
Department of Cell and Systems Biology, Systems Neurobiology Laboratory, University of Toronto, Toronto, Ontario, Canada M5S 3G5
J Neurosci 28:4649-60. 2008..We conclude that an endogenous glutamatergic drive onto somatic motoneurons contributes to the stereotypical pattern of muscle tone during wakefulness, NREM sleep, and phasic REM sleep but not during tonic REM sleep...
